Speaker slams LGBTQ+ 'promoter'Kamala Harris...calls out Akufo-Addo to stay in his line

The Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin, has slammed US Vice President Kamala Harris for her comments on Ghana’s position on LGBTQ+ issues.

According to him, the US Vice President’s assertion regarding the matter does not sit well with his conviction.

This was after Kamala Harris was asked about the development at the Jubilee House on Monday. Madam Harris did not directly address the Anti-gay bill in Ghana’s Parliament but restated her stance on human right violation against minorities adding that her position remains unchanged.

But the Speaker of Parliament described her comments as undemocratic and “should not be tolerated.”

Speaking during a meeting with some religious leaders, the Speaker said no one can dictate to this country, especially regarding the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and the Ghanaian Family Values Bill.

He also criticised President Akufo-Addo insisting he cannot control Parliament on this bill.

“There’s no way he can intervene. That answer he gave, wait until we pass it, and we will direct you to execute it, that is where you come in. In terms of the law which is part of the policy, we will finalise it, then the executive has the authority to implement it. Let’s get this clear,” he stated.

The Speaker also expressed his confusion over the delay that has characterized the progress of the bill which is currently before the Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee.
